Anna Sophia Robb - The New Carrie Bradshaw?


The question of who will play the young Carrie Bradshaw in the CW drama has been answered, with AnnaSophia Robb picked to star as the young fashionista in ‘The Carrie Diaries‘ – according to Deadline!


The project, from Warner Bros TV and Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage’s Fake Empire, is based on Candace Bushnell’s novel, which is a prequel to her best-seller Sex And The City that was adapted into the iconic HBO series. It will chronicle Carrie’s coming of age in the 1980s when she asks her first questions about love, sex, friendship and family, while exploring the worlds of high school and Manhattan.


Scribe Amy Harris (‘Gossip Girl‘) penned the script and is executive producing with Bushnell, Schwartz, Savage and Len Goldstein.

Robb has enjoyed other major roles in movies as ‘Charlie And The Chocolate Factory‘, ‘Race To Witch Mountain‘, ‘The Space Between‘ and most recently the based-on-a-true story ‘Soul Surfer‘, in which she portrayed the title character, teen surfer Bethany Hamilton, who lost an arm in a shark attack!


Is this prequel likely to work?
